Daizen Shrine大膳神社


Just when this ancient Shinto shrine was founded is not clear, but records state it was built by local influential personage Honma Yamashiroto enshrine late Kamakura period nobleman Hino Suketomo and ascetic hermit Daizenbo. It is said funds were solicited to build the shrine in order to appease the vengeful spirit of Daizenbo, who was executed for helping Suketomo’s child, Kumawakamaru, to run away. The structure which conspicuously asserts its presence on the grounds is Sado’s oldest extant noh stage. One of the Four Noh Stages of Sado Province, even today firelight noh theater and Sagi school kyogen farce performances are held using the stage. The stage’s painted backdrop depicts a pine tree with the sun in the background, and it is believed that this is the only remaining example of this unusual style of noh backdrop.
